“I blew it today. The mistake is on me, I thought if I stayed high I’d be okay. That’s where I had the most momentum all race and where my truck was more comfortable but that just didn’t work out when the 16 got to me. He had a such a run. This ISM Connect team worked hard last night and this morning to make adjustments before qualifying. We were a little off in practice yesterday and knew we needed to do something big. It worked out and they gave me a great Chevy, I just didn’t do what I needed to do at the end.”
